This book is an amazing and user friendly introduction to Zbrush which carries you all the way to advanced concepts of Zbrush. Eric's obvious skill and expertise as an instructor is apparent throughout the book. Follow Eric's work step-by-step and you simply cannot get lost. Here's a bonus - most other Zbrush videos, tutorials, on-line training will typically showoff the author's work and generally leave you producing sculpts that you may not even be interested in. While Eric's work is amazing by itself he also takes you step-by-step through creating some of this amazing work for yourself. I have gotten further in understanding Zbrush from following these books than I have on all other resources both free and paid for online. I own both, "Introducing ZBrush" and "Introducing Zbrush 4." I will not part with either. I understand an even newer version is coming out soon. All of them are worth having and I will be first in line for the new copy. EXCELLENT!!!!
